Pekhart hopeful of Tottenham breakthrough

Tottenham starlet Tomas Pekhart is hopeful that he is closing on his first-team debut for the club.

The 18-year-old was included in the squad for the Uefa Cup clash at Anorthosis Famagusta last week, but he did not travel as Spurs' management realised he was not registered for the competition.

"I was looking forward very much to travelling there and I was then sorry it did not turn out," Pekhart admitted.

"On the other hand, it might have been a sign that they really do count on me for the future. I hope it was not just a coincidence."

Pekhart is ready for action, but he knows competition is intense at White Hart Lane.

"I don't want to rush it at any cost, I want to be prepared for that [his debut] as much as possible," he toldCTK.

"I know that I could be given only a single chance to play for the first-team. And if I didn't perform well, then I might not be given any other.

"It is true though that to play for Tottenham's first team is my big dream. I must work hard and be patient.

"It is true that the competition at Tottenham is huge. But for me it is great that I can learn a lot from such champions.

"After training I often stay with them and we train at shooting, or I can visit alone our special coach with whom we practice the one-on-ones or technique."
